Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 20, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETIIBRIBGIg BAfTyY HERALD In These Days No Merchant Can be Successful Unless He Represents You BY J.R. HAMILTON Fornnrly, Advirtlslng Manager of, Wanamaker'i Philadelphia J7JFTY years ago every store had a 1 "barker" just as every sideshow has now. He was not so loud, but he was equally insistent. He stood on the side- walk in front of his store and urged you to come in. When you entered, ho rang a bell. You were surrounded by Highwaymen and there Immediately began a system of. nr'lgaiid- nee Which ,was not men surpassed .by hold-up men on lonely roads. The of these so-called salesmen won to find out how much money you had. Every ruae was resorted to to get you to open your'wallet or your puree. THe second object was to get as much of tliat money as possible and hli value to his concern was measured .entirely by your loss. This Is not romance; it Is history. Not the worst stores, but many of the best stores did It. The only price on an article wns the highest price you would pay. The law at Caveat Emptor (let tbe buyer beware) was'the Coin- merclal Law of the land. It was under.tood that you and. the merchant wore commercial enemies and that you were his legi- timate prey, _ Such things as a definite price or the returnabillty of merchan- dise or a guarantee ot good faith would have been considered fool- hardy. .Now, out of all this chicanery, thla cross-roads bartering, this world-old hostility of buyer and seller, have come the clean, whole- some, trustworthy institutions of the. present 'day. And the ,one great factor that has brought this change about is ADVERTISING. And the reason to rthls is. that a man is nat- mally'far mqre careful ot what he writes than of what he merely .says. To-day you walk into a store with as much, confidence as you would enter your home. You feel that every possible, safe-juard Is thrown about you'for your protection. 'The merchant, .where he once was your commercial enemy, has become your business re- presentative. Your pleasure is his command. He will do any- thing .within reason to meet your smallest request. Even the manu- faoturers and big distributors have caught this feeling that they .must- represent you, or you will not patronize them. This Is the great thing .that Advertising lias done for trade. And the peculiar pant of it Is that you feel this safety, this reliab- ility, .this surety ot fair play only toward those who advertise. That is.why the advertising columns of this paper should much 16 you. That is 'Why' you should make this adver- tising's, part of your daily news. That Is why you should begin to read It today, and continue to read It every day for everything you buy. Blow Your Own Horn If You Have a Good Horn to Slow Through and Something Good 'to Blow We're blowing about Advertising AND Results And We're Blowing FACTS "On Saturday we sold twenty-two of those suits we advertised; as well as a number of others; also a coon coat worth 'although the weath- er did not demand it."

A mingled roar of cheers and hiss- es greeted this, but nulet .was soon restored, and Governor Johnson pro John J. Rulllva'n, Ohio; A. V. Swift, ceeded: "This new party, which Oregon; UN.'

Crowding developments in the 'cotm ells of lenders, and behind conference room doors outside of the convention hall, only partly seen and' understood by the body-of the delegates, threw normally balanced men into a st-ato near nVsteria, during which they swore, shouted and gesticulated until quieted by the interference unen or detectives. Pending-the outcome of the uncer- tainty, the members of the various couimit'tees selected by the conven- tion postponed their me-etings, and much delay resulted in this connec- tion.

One, however, which was gen- eral, and which wast given 'credence by many of the delegates was that the convention would meet at noon and immediately adjourn until four o'cloc-k, only to meet and adjourn- un- til -eight o'clock in ihe for the purpose of giving time for the entire situation revolving arountl tii bitter Roosevelt light to reshape self. The question of- ally to be taken by Col. Roosevelt an( his followers heatedly debatei at every meeting of a group of dele gates or politicians. Some, professing to hold "iueid-a1 information of the plans Roose velt forces, insisted that Col. Roose velt would lead his followers to "ah other hall or auditorium to organize a'new, distinct convention, and a new party. Others declared efjua New Republican Party Will Be Born 'f Taft the Convention June his followers last night, .Mr. Roosevelt received seventy or eighty, stolen Mr. Deneen's resolution '.was beaten today by fraud- ulent votegj which, in {hat resolution, by the votes of Texas, Arizona a nil Washington, and the two fraudulent votes from1 California.
